Abstract:
Fuel effects on exhaust emissions of a sample of seven high emitting vehicles were studied. The vehicles had various mechanical problems and all ran fuel rich. The degree of enrichment varied between tests, and strongly affected mass emissions. Variable enrichment can cause incorrect apparent fuel effects to be calculated if not accounted for in data analysis. After variable enrichment was compensated for, the percentage effects of fuel oxygen, RVP, and olefins were largely in agreement with prior findings for normally emitting vehicles. Reducing fuel sulfur and T90 may have less benefit on hydrocarbon emissions in these high emitters than in normal emitters, and reducing sulfur may have less benefit on CO emissions. Reducing aromatics may be somewhat more helpful in reducing hydrocarbon and CO emissions in the high emitters. After variable enrichment was compensated for, fuel effects on nitrogen oxide emissions were similar in normal and high emitters, with the possible exceptions of a greater benefit of reducing fuel T90 and an adverse effect of reducing aromatics in the high emitters.
